1797. On board a ship bound for the New World, the dashing young Spanish nobleman Joaquin de Castille meets a handsome Roman named Tomas.
Joaquin thinks he's been sent to heaven on Earth. But no, this is Hell at sea. Even though Joaquin's desire is returned, the most beautiful being ever to pass before his eyes turns out to be a priest from the Vatican, disgraced and exiled to the farthest possible place from Rome.
For his part, Tomas has fallen in love at first sight with Joaquin, and Tomas isn't allowed to fall in love at all. He just wants one night of passion with this impossibly handsome man before the journey is done.
He gets much more.
There can be no future for the two together on the far shore. Joaquin is headed to his father's vast hacienda in California, while Tomas must go to a Spanish mission in Texas to serve among warring native tribes.
Joaquin knows that landfall will signal the end of all their nights of ecstasy, but he cannot live without Tomas. He cannot let the affair end.

Devon used to be a server at the Hammer Club, the most exclusive BDSM club in town. But that was before he inherited a lot of money from his grandmother and decided to buy a big old house and convert it into apartments for Hammer Club waiters. It's hard to find decent, affordable housing and he wants to do something good for his fellow twinks. Unfortunately the house is in much worse repair than he knew when he bought it and he's slowly drowning under the weight of the demands from both the house, and the boys who live in it.
Enter Barney, the contractor Devon calls in for an emergency fix of the building's pipes. Barney's heard of the Hammer Club, in fact he's saving up for a membership, but it's going to take a while on his blue collar salary. He falls for Devon on the spot and can only hope the feeling is mutual. He also wants to make sure none of Devon’s twink friends are running roughshod over the man, and he’s determined to help.
Can they work together to find a way to keep Devon, and his old house, afloat?
